Carlow man Tom Daly joins Connacht on loan from Leinster till the end of the season

The local man heads west to try get more game time

Carlow man Tom Daly has joined Connacht on loan from Leinster until the end of the current season.

He made his Leinster debut in November 2016 against Zebre, but has struggled for game time with strong competition for places in the squad.

Only two of his 12 appearances for Leinster have come from the start, and has featured twice this season off the bench.
